I had 4 young cockerels in a large cage together and 2 of them turned on the other 2. I have already separated the two injured boys and treated the wounds, one cockerel is scabbed over and healing nicely (he also had a much smaller wounded area), the other keeps picking at his wound himself so it is still raw and bloody. So my question is, will an E-collar work for a chicken? I've used them on mammals and parakeets but have never had a chicken that needed something to keep him from picking. Is there something else I can use to cover the wound that will let air in but keep his beak out? The wound is all across the top of his tail and lower back so wrapping it traditionally would be near impossible because it would have to cover his vent area. Any ideas are welcome!
